When it comes to toot one’s own horn, there are two types of people. There are boasters and there are BS-ers. The difference between the two is accomplishment. For example, when Steve Jobs boasts about the performance of the new iPhone 4G, he had the wild success of the previous iPhones to back him up. Now, when you don’t have anything to back up your claims you sound like MSNBC talker Ed Schultz:
Where has this guy ever drawn a crowd anything near the size of Beck’s rally? I don’t think Schultz even has 300,000 regular listeners on either of his shows. The most telling thing about Schultz’s statement is need for union help to pull it off.
SCHULTZ (07:00): Hold it right there! Before we get to her answer, I could get every union head in this country, I could organize every progressive group in this country, the main bloggers. This could be The Ed March. Folks, 300,000 people on the heels of six months' promotion, that ain't no big shakes!
Six months' promotion, NBC News says 300,000 people. I bet I could do that! I bet I could do that with this radio show and my TV show and six months' production, six months' promotion, if I had the budget I could equal that march. I know I could!
I guarantee you, I could do more than 300,000! It ain't a big deal!
I say go for it Ed! I don’t think he could even get a 100,000 people, even with Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow helping (and make no mistake Maddow would draw the lion’s share out of the three).
The only thing better than seeing Ed Schultz totally fail, would be the meltdown he would have from being publicly humiliated.
UPDATE: Even Glenn Beck is laughing
